New Delhi [India], November 18 (ANI): While Women's Day or Children's Day are occasions that are widely known and commemorated, International Men's Day, which falls on November 19, is a lesser talked about occasion, celebrated annually to honour the daily men in our lives who bring around a positive impact.

It's a day to celebrate their achievements and contributions towards the nation, union, society, community, family, marriage, and childcare. The broader and ultimate aim of the day is to promote basic humanitarian values, as well as awareness towards men's issues like toxic masculinity, male mental health and the prevalence of suicide in men, basically bringing to light the various issues that men face.

Inaugurated in 1992 on February 7 by Thomas Oaster, the project of International Men's Day was conceived one year earlier on February 8, 1991. It was re-initialised in 1999 in Trinidad and Tobago. It's currently celebrated in several countries including India, the USA, the UK, Australia, Singapore, Canada, Hungary, etc.

Though, the topics that International Men's Day highlights are are needed to be more talked about, year-round, however, November 19 is especially the time of the year when the men in our lives should be appreciated and reminded about the love we have for them.
